New Star Wars Comics For August 24th and Upcoming FOC Deadlines

Hi there! So glad you could make it. It’s Friday. The weather is beautiful. And I have a post full of new Star Wars comics for you. Thank the void, life is great.

Next week we get two new comics. Star Wars Darth Vader #26 and Star Wars Doctor Aphra #23.

Before I get into the details I wanted to mention something about Aphra. Last week Marvel announced a new Star Wars: Doctor Aphra Volume 2 Omnibus that will collect the entire 2022run by Alyssa Wong. For that they listed it collecting issues 1-25. Which makes me believed that issue #25 will be the last comic of this run and maybe the last Doctor Aphra titled comic ever.

Also Monday August 22nd is the FOC deadline for Darth Vader 27 and the Star Wars Halcyon Legacy Trade Paperback. You can lock in your copies here.

When Sabé, Vader’s unlikely new ally, goes missing, Vader must confront his own dark heart in the maelstrom of a terrible sandstorm – while tapping into one of his earliest skills in a wildly unexpected way!

Star Wars Comic Book FOC Deadlines

For those who aren’t familiar, FOC, or Final Order Cut Off, is when publishers and distributors require retailers to get their orders in. Printers then print according to that number (sometimes with overages). So, if you want to absolutely guarantee you get a book, best bet is to order it before FOC. Final Order Cut Off is Monday 8/22/22 this week.

The biggest book this week is probably the Darth Vader 27 Sprouse Choose Your Destiny Variant that features the first canon cover of Darth Bane.

Let’s dive in…

Star Wars Darth Vader 27

(W) Greg Pak (A) Raffaele Ienco (CA) Rahzzah

So as Vader and Sabé enter the final battle against a corrupt Imperial governor, something’s going to break. Will it be Vader’s cold resolve or Sabé’s true heart? And how long until Ochi of Bestoon finally makes his move?
